Open U.P.P.E.R.

Canadian Cycling Magazine - - FEATURE -

The U.P.P.E.R. is at the top end of Open Cy­cles’ line of re­fined and ver­sa­tile gravel-bike frames. It’s lighter than the clas­sic U.P. (which stands for Un­beaten Path). It can run 700c wheels with tires as wide as 40 mm and even 27.5" hoops with 2.1" moun­tain bike tires. How can the frame han­dle that? The dif­fer­ence in the ra­dius be­tween those two tire-and-wheel com­bi­na­tions is a mere 8 mm. The U.P.P.E.R. frame and its U-turn fork take flat-mount calipers. With the Mul­tistop de­sign, you can run what­ever driv­e­train you want: 2 x 10/11, 1 x 10/11 and Di2. The hard­est part will be plan­ning your U.P.P.E.R. build.
